Welcome back, Weiner?

Welcome back
Your dong was your ticket out
Welcome back
To that same old place where you got no clout

NYDN:

There are serious questions about how recovery workers were supposed to cut through all the red tape to help survivors of Sandy.

Former Congressman Anthony Weiner is taking another step back onto the political stage after the sexting scandal that upended his career.

Weiner has co-authored an opinion piece about the suffering in the Rockaways following Hurricane Sandy. The column, written with Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-Queens), appears in Wednesday’s Daily News

Weiner said the op-ed is not part of a plan to repair his public image – but it’s sure to stoke new talk of a potential political comeback.

Of course, Anthony Weiner has been known to say things from time to time that maybe perhaps aren’t exactly 100% true as far as not being complete lies. So there’s that.

But hey, at least somebody’s talking about the Rockaways as if they’re something more than a backdrop for The One. WABC:

There are serious questions about how recovery workers were supposed to cut through all the red tape to help survivors of Sandy.

A mom in the Rockaways whose home was flooded is still, more than four weeks after the storm, tied up in red tape.

10-year-old Jamilla Katz’s artwork covers the walls of her water slammed Far Rockaway home…

Ms. Katz neighbors have all already received checks from FEMA that they’re using for temporary housing.

But because of a single paperwork mix-up, she hasn’t gotten a nickel.

“Miss, we don’t need you to prove that you own the house, we need you to prove that you live in the house and that’s when I ran from there crying, I can’t, I can’t anymore,” Katz said.

But wait, isn’t this the kind of red tape the president said he wouldn’t tolerate?

“Something about not tolerating red tape, we’re not going to tolerate bureaucracy and I’ve instituted a 15 minute on my team you return everyone’s calls within 15 minutes,” President Obama said.

Yeah, but promises don’t have to be kept unless they’re made by a Republican. Shut up, Rockaways.
